WWE SmackDown kicks off with a tribute image of the 9/11
We start off with a clip of last weeks promo involving Paul
Heyman and Roman Reigns. We cut to the number one contender
match for the WWE Universal Championship where Jey Uso came
In the ThunderDome, its Roman Reigns who who comes out with
Paul Heyman. Both men get in the ring as Paul Heyman says
the tribal chief has authorized him to enlighten us on some
recent history. Two weeks ago on SmackDown, they let the
secret out of the bag. They told everybody what only the two
of them knew and two days later at Payback, Roman Reigns
wrecked everyone and left. And he left the Universal
Heyman says last Friday, no secret, Roman wanted Heyman to
say everything and as tribal council, he did. And on that
same night, his blood line, his family, his cousin Jey Uso
stepped up. Jey emerged as the only beneficiary of a fatal
four way match. Heyman introduces the challenger for the
Universal Championship at The Clash of the Champions,
legally its his cousin but he may as well be his blood
brother, its Jey Uso.
Jeys music hits and out he comes to the ring. Jey tells
Heyman that he goes way back with his family and he has love
for him. That;s why he wanted to thank him because now he
gets to compete against his blood, his cousin, the Universal
Champion at Clash of Champions. Heyman states that he
doesnt owe him anything, the appreciation should go to
Roman. When Big E was taken out, it was Romans idea. He
just implemented and executed a command from his boss, from
his tribal chief, the reigning, defending, undisputed,
Universal Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns.
Roman tells Jey he doesnt have to thank him, theyre blood.
Years they have thought about it, they are family. He is
proud of him, the whole family is proud of him, he earned
this. No one gave him this, hes about to be in the main
event at Clash of Champions. Hes about to take a huge pay
day for his family, this is his moment. At Clash of
Champions, thats not going to be your moment. Like when we
were kids, Im going to whip your ass and its all love.
Jey says they are grown men now. Baron Corbins music hits.
Corbin says enough, it doesnt take a genius to figure it
out. It was a setup. Roman pulled a few strings to get a
hand picked opponent for his very first title match. And
that guy just happened to be his cousin. It makes him sick.
Theres nothing that he despises more than watching somebody
walk around and abuse their power.
Out comes Sheamus to the ring. Sheamus says he is gonig to
have to agree with Corbin as this all stinks. Last week when
he kindly reminded Big E where his car was parked, he took
an unfortunate spill. It should have been a triple threat
match but strings are pulled and Jey Uso is now in the
match. Sheamus asks how can anyone prepare on such short
notice. Jey asks if he wants time to prepare. Sheamus says
not now, the grownup hasnt stopped talking. Jey challenges
Sheamus and Corbin to a tag team match.
